Since 2002 the Powderbird team has been traveling to Greenland to explore the seemingly endless ski and snowboard opportunities. Most of Greenland lies below 1000 meters of ice, the burden so great that the island’s interior is compressed to below sea level. Around its edges the icecap spills down into thousands of glaciers, sculpting out fjords and rugged mountain ranges. It is here, where the glaciers clash with the North Atlantic, that we are blessed with some of the most scenic and coveted ski terrain on the globe.
Greenland offers big vertical, with many runs from 3,000-5,000 vertical feet! There are numerous opportunities for first descents, dry polar powder, and long ski days. We travel by boat and helicopter to the many fjords and seek out ski runs from mountaintop to seaside. The vistas boast spectacular landscapes and abundant sea life.
We operate our week-long ski adventures from different locations, giving our clients the opportunity to choose their own unique Greenlandic experience. Options include staying in a harbor side hotel located in the fishing community of Maniitsoq, basing on the ship Kisaq as we travel to new heli-ski destinations along the coast, or flying from an arctic camp setup in any number of beautiful locations. Itineraries are designed to meet the needs and desires of our clients.
In conjuction with a local heliski partner, Powderbird International is proud to present you a truly private and exclusive Chilean heliskiing experience. Your home base is a plush Chilean villa, nestled on a 900,000 acre ranch. Enjoy South American hospitality at its finest with daily outdoor BBQs and pisco sours during cocktail hour.
